SWAN CREEK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Saginaw County authorities say a 65-year-old Vietnam veteran has been killed in a tractor accident.
Sheriff's Lt. Randy Pfau tells Mlive.com (http://bit.ly/OLWm87 ) that Gary DeSander of Swan Creek Township was found about 7 p.m. Saturday. The lieutenant says the accident happened on the shore of a pond, but DeSander's head was not under water.
The site is near DeSander's home, about 10 miles west-southwest of Saginaw.
Pfau says an autopsy found that DeSander died of asphyxiation from a crushed chest.
DeSander was born in Saginaw, graduated from Arthur Hill High School in 1964 and served in the Vietnam war.
